I am an Israeli dancer, teacher and choreographer, based in Berlin.

I created several works which won scholarships from the America- Israel Cultural Foundation and the foundation named after Ehud Manor.

I need to find something that is common for EVERYBODY. something global. Something universal. something that is beyond the specificity of what I do, and then, when I catch them, I can slowly and gradually lead them by the hand…

Then, I found the material- the people I want to work with. The people that understands me, that interest me, and that share interests with me.
